London Fog – Haiku

Image from Google Hub Photo Frame

Engulfed, sight was dimmed

Heavy fog obfuscating

Chilly murkiness

———-

Thick like a pea soup

Squinting, difficult to see

Suspended droplets

This haiku was written for a challenge over at Fandango’s called #FFFC.

Men in Pots – #FFFC

Plant a man

Watch him grow

Does he grow fast

or does he grow slow

A vegetarian …

I’d say so

Look at his face, he looks like a grump

I would too with those bumps

Horns on his head holding up trees

Pull off a leaf and he will sneeze

He sits all day inside his pot

He’d better take care before he rots. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Girl In The Window

The following poem was written in response to #FFFC#57.

Looking out into the dark night

Wanting to escape, knowing it was right

Longing to see her family

Perhaps she should cause a calamity

If she left she’d be tracked

If found she’d be attacked

Brought here many years ago

For reasons many didn’t want to know

The woman that brought her here

Knew not what she’d endear

Planning her great escape

Before she was again raped

Windows

Fandango flash fiction

Gazing out window

Watching life passing them by

Wondering outcome

=================

Dolls in a window

For all passers-by to see

Little girls behold

================

Window to our lives

So much passes before us

Not missing anything

================

Wanting to escape

Too far to jump to be free

Someone will see us

==============
